Enterprise-Class Protection Even Small Businesses Can Afford
Complacency—it’s the biggest problem in security today, says Michael Gazeley,managing director of Network Box Corp., LTD (www.networkboxusa.com), a global provider of managed security services, including for more than 150 financial institutions in the United States alone.
As Gazeley sees it, if your company’s management isn’t making security a priority, you as an IT manager probably aren’t either, thus making security a business-continuity time bomb ready to explode at any moment.
“In the world today, the Internet gateway is the primary business vector, yet the level of care, attention, and reporting on security matters is almost nonexistent,” Gazeley says.
While companies go to great lengths to monitor visitors to their physical offices, he says, “businesses seem unwilling to spend either time or money on gateway security, yet the Internet gateway is switched on 24/7 and represents one of the greatest threats to their business.
